Twilight Zone: Bella and Edward Get Graphic

Get your filthy mind out of the gutter!

You know that those pan-camera-away-from-the-action-and-hard-cut-to-the-next-scene-just-as-it-was-getting-good sex scenes of newlyweds Bella and Edward are just about as graphic as Stephenie Meyer is willing to get.

Just when you thought you could escape Twilight Mania (they STILL have those huge displays at the bookstore, but thankfully MJ and Jon & Kate have taken over the covers of US Weekly, OK!, etc.), Stephenie Meyer announces on her blog that Twilight will now be a graphic novel!

I echo Tina Jordan's happy observation that the characters in the graphic novel aren't just drawings of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, both of whom I thought were mis-cast. Instead, they are a just a 'lil bit closer to what you might have been picturing while reading the book.

  1. They look very manga-style, which is interesting in terms of the discussion we had a while back about multi-racial casting in the movie.
